Melissa Gilbert will likely return to Dancing With the Stars tonight after she was treated for a mild concussion and whiplash after Monday’s show.

The Little House on the Prairie star was taken to the ER for observation and tests before the ABC show was over. She tweeted her 80,000-something fans during her hospital stay. “Very soon I will be safely home resting and being taken care of,” she wrote.

Later, she tweeted a thank you to fellow contestant Gavin DeGraw for “carrying me down those stairs.”

Gilbert and Maksim Chmerkovskiy earned a 22 out of 30 possible points for their performance.
